Description

I fell in love with this climber, trialled in our garden and greenhouse last summer.

First come the delicate flowers, then the green balloon seedpods, each one holding a black seed inside marked with a perfect white heart – hence, its common name Love-in-a-puff.

Care Tips

Provide support for climbing - best in a sheltered spot.
